Jay A's recent activity

  • 2008? That was 12 years ago. I don't know how many times I've said here, the industry is now saturated! When the D700 appeared it was one of the first full frame cameras. It was very desirable ...
  • Replied in BBF with Q's
    Am I just getting too old? Why should it have to take me 10 minutes to figure out what BBF is? Man oh man, I hate acronyms. LOL
  • I use the 55 micro and have used the 200 as well. They work fine. One thing to consider is that since there are no electronic contacts in these lenses, the FTZ adapter isn't absolutely necessary. ...
  • OK a couple of things here. 1 - I am not sure where you are trying to go with this "while you raised your price from $1 to $2, an entirely new class of coffee mugs appeared." Excuse my ignorance ...
  • Check for firmware updates. I remember seeing a post not too long ago about a firmware update addressing the heat issue.
  • Replied in VR
    Good to know, thanks, that's promising. But the FX version of the 70-300 AF-P...anyone with comparisons between it and the 50-250?
  • Replied in VR
    Has anyone compared or seen comparisons between this lens and the 70-300 AF-P? The FX version? I've got that lens and don't really like using it because it becomes rather big on the camera with ...
  • With attitudes like I am seeing here, it's really no wonder the camera industry is dying.
  • Well don't you see that this is my point? Cameras to an extent always have been a niche market. And NO enthusiasts especially will NOT always pay what they have to pay. This is precisely the ...
  • Yes I get that. Read the entire thread and you might see that I suggested somewhere that perhaps the manufacturers need to find ways to reduce costs in order to lower prices.
  • Sorry but you keep insisting on ignoring the fact that camera equipment is just...not...selling! And you STILL haven't suggested what the industry can do about that! Has nothing to do with a Rolls ...
  • I said I was going to bow out, but I have to respond to this... I don't know how I can provide a better reason why! Sales have plummeted . I've said this over and over. If I stand on a street ...
  • Your comments above really miss a lot of the point. For instance, you say that the cell phone has replaced the point and shoot cameras. Yes this is very true, but what does that have to do with ...
  • I am not necessarily "proposing" anything, just stating fact. Maybe what I am not getting across effectively, is of course Nikon and everyone else cannot exist on lower profit margins. Maybe a big ...
  • Yes, smaller screens equate to lower prices. But why does a 32" TV cost the same today as a 13" TV from 40 years ago? Camera demand, be it Nikon or anyone else was pretty bad even before anyone ...
  • And I never said they would double their sales if they halved their prices. Your second paragraph makes an assumption that I just disagree with. People used far more than Brownies and Instamatics ...
  • "Something less expensive doesn't make it more desirable." Backwards way of looking at it. How about, "something that is desirable is more attainable if it's less expensive?" Doesn't matte that a ...
  • Film vs digital are totally different tech too. And many own several cameras as well. I didn't address the second part because I am not going to make that statement either way. All I can say is ...
  • What difference does it make that the TV from 40 years ago was a tube TV? And what difference does it make how many anyone has? A top of the line Nikon (which was a film camera) from 40 years ago ...
  • Yes fine. Those cameras should cost about $200 and $350. Just my opinion. But they are very entry level. Why is it that I can get a low end (entry level if you will ) 32" TV set for about a hundred ...
